Yeah, definitely SP's for hunting. Although, I've found 50grHP's to be a very good plinking and hunting. I p/u a 500rd brick @ GB's for just under $100.00 free S/H and no tax. Get Dynapoint @ Wally's for $80.00 a brick plus tax, $85 about. I rather shoot the cci in my Marlin 823 and rough rider, cleaner, will last longer, definitely worth the $1.00 a box more.
